Bill Engvall On TV Dad Duty

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comedian Bill Engvall has a full-time job parenting his TV kids.

Engvall – whose sitcom The Bill Engvall Show returns for a third season tomorrow (Jul. 18) on TBS – is constantly on dad duty with his onscreen kids.

When his youngest TV son scraped his knee on the set, Engvall was there to bandage him up and warn him not to run around.

When his TV daughter talks about boyfriends, Engvall reminds her to tell potential suitors that they’ll have to get through him first.

Last season, when his TV son got his driver’s license, Engvall cheered as the teen pulled up to the set for the first time.

When he’s not parenting, Engvall keeps up with hip trends, and recently impressed his TV kids by “Twittering” between takes.

He also strives to embarrass the kids as much as possible, especially when they screw up lines – but they get back at him.

They once managed to steal all the wheels off Engvall’s golf cart, a pretty solid prank by his standards.
